No one had it today, but lately you guys have been having chicken thighs. We grilled some tonight. They sure did hit the spot. We usually eat chicken breasts, but we love dark meat too. Thanks to all who reminded me that I need to fix thighs sometimes too! ;)

Thanks for the nice comments, guys. I'm thinking next time I might use some marinated artichoke hearts or some sliced green olives for some "bite"..

I much prefer thighs over breasts, chopper, especially on the grill where breasts dry out before your very eyes. In fact I hardly ever use breasts for anything anymore, and save a ton of $$ too!!

I agree! Nothing beats growing and eating your own produce and the fruit and herbs actually taste of something unlike the bland flavourless shop bought varieties!
I love making a simple sandwich with still warm tomatoes from the garden or some freshly picked radishes and rocket leaves etc. Yum!

Thank you Fiona and msmofet. There is enough left in the fridge for one more. I might have that for lunch when I get back from shopping, since I only tasted it last night for seasonings.

Wound up eating fancy mac & cheese. With sliced tomatoes. Tomatoes will be in every meal for awhile.

Hey don't worry bout it Pac!! Double postings of BACON just double the drooling.
We really need a drooling smiley.
